    US partners BudgIT, religious leaders to fight corruption

    The United States Diplomatic Mission to Nigeria in collaboration with BudgIT, on Wednesday launched #ReportYourselfNG, a web-based platform that engages citizens to fight corruption in Nigeria.

    This anti-corruption initiative, according to Vanguard, is funded by the United States Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement, and was developed by BudgIT.

    During the official lunch ceremony, U.S. Chargé d’ Affaires David Young explained that Report Yourself puts the power to report corruption in the hands of the Nigerian people.

    “I hope that Report Yourself starts a new movement in citizen engagement and I hope every Nigerian who is affected by corruption will feel empowered to share their experiences. The tide will turn against the culture of corruption when Nigerians recognize that they must fight as one to stamp out this scourge that has hampered development and stifled prosperity,” he said.

    The partnership to promote Report Yourself also includes the Religious Leaders Anti-Corruption (RLAC) working group and Nigerian law enforcement agencies.
